Best Poison Pierce Possible

Currently I am working on getting Trang's set and just need Guise (curses to you Diablo!!!!) but I've seen that it only gives 25% pierce. I am pretty sure Death's Web gives another 40% or such and I'm curious on how to get higher than 65%. I don't even know where to get facets and in my whole weekend haven't seen any (XD still going so mabye I'll be lucky. Sides I think that they are reaallly hard to get) So is there any equipment that gives poison pierce? or even poison dmg % like Trang's Claws?

Bramble.
3 items of Trangs (must include shield)
Death's Web
Rainbow Facettes are the only items that supply poison damage % and -poison resistance

3 piece trangs gives -25% on the shield and +25% on the gloves.
Deaths web gives -40 to 50 to poison resists
Good level Lower resist can give -60

So with those 3 your at -100 minimum.

Facets drop anywhere in hell and can be +3-5/-3-5.

bramble isnt a good option from a practical view point though(compared to enigma)

I'm a pvm build... .-. I don't need teleport... And I can't teleport on peoples

Well at least I can get decent poison pierce... Time to continue my 3 day long mf spree.

Haha, compare your run times with and without teleport. Even on a slow casting char like an amazon its big help

Teleportation is so over-rated...
:thumbup:

death web perf : -50
4 facet in trang shield , armor , helm , weapon : -20
3 trang items : -25

-95 psn res from items +
-61 from lower resist lvl16 (with just 1 point)

cheers

Consider kill speed.


Teleport and take two-three tries to kill things or run by and kill in one pass?

Im not sure what you mean by more tries but teleporting brings merc and skells for more dps, allows best positioning, moves way faster than running

Best poison pierce? Forget about 3 piece trangs ... and resists arent gonna be nice im warning you ... but here's a max damage novamancer ...

DWeb with poison facet
4xfacet 4 os armor (Better to go bramble, but if you're looking for max pierce ...)
4xfacet monarch
2xfacet 2socket +3pnb circlet
arach
trangs gloves
2 x soj
3pnb 100 life ammy
your choice of boots

9x skillers, torch, anni, bo and skill shrine

remember facets and -res from DWeb are the same, they reduce enemies psn res and also reduce enemy plr, increasing your poison duration. Lower resist only stacks on the -poison res, not the -plr.

I second to Zrk's opinion. I've tried both. Enigma is much better. Bramble or other give you more damage or pierce but you don't kill as fast.

This works if you're hybridizing with skeletons and not playing a poisonmancer.

Having the ability to teleport, IMHO, is well worth the 50% more damage from Bramble (I know it is alot).

poison mancer has the spare points anyway.. though merc is the main physical dmg guy in any case

True. You can have skelly or bone shield either way. Yes, to above post, teleport>>50% damage increase(even it is hard to get a perfect roll, I roll a 47 one and I'm already pretty happy).

...for info, I am a non hybrid just a simple poison mancer w/ Bone armor and synergies to boost it. I have no use for summons here due to me never using amp to help them. Sides BA should be a good enough Meat wall and my merc should be decent as well. At least I got the HIGHEST possible one and for it I could add some resist charms or such. (even though there is only space for 7-8 haven't done math I'm lazy)

Skelly and BA serve the same purpose-- meat shield. It should be fine with either one. Resist is important if you plan to run chaos/baal. Only ok resist requires for pit runs. My routine: Bloody Hill for quick kill and get some skellys, Baal, Chaos, Counsils, Meph, Pits, towers, Andy. He runs almost all bosses without problem :)

>.< You know you can take Pindle's garden for corpses right?

I have decided to make a more max dmg build and 20 SM and 20 Smagey. It'd do moar dmg with the lower resist and would kill in Hell for a bit while I'm looking for my Death's Web.
